Read This Whenever You Feel Like You Don’t Belong

By Rayi Noormega - June 05, 2017


When you feel like you don’t belong in the place where you’re standing now, I hope you remember that you don’t have to belong to just one place. I hope you know that you have countless possibilities only if you’re brave enough to step out of your comfort zone and see beyond your wall of fears. I hope you realize that you deserve this whole world.
I hope you realize that you don’t belong to the society that doesn’t see your true talent, your gifts, and your worth. You don’t belong to the society where you have to put a mask on your face, pretending that you are part of them, when actually, you lost yourself along the way. You don’t belong to a place where you have to fulfill society’s standards instead of your own. No; you don’t belong to the place where you have to hide your true self in order to fit in.

You don’t belong to the place where you have to put effort to fit in, simply because the place where you actually belong will never ask you to fit in; you just will.

You belong to the place where you’re appreciated for your ideas, thoughts, and values. You belong to the place where the people accept you for who you are, without asking you to be less or more. You belong to the place where they support your dreams and they help you to reach them, because they have dreams as big as yours. You belong to the place where you don’t feel lonely and different. 
You belong to the place where you can actualize your potential, talents, and passion to the fullest without feeling judged. You belong to the place where you can explore the roads less traveled and feel the things you’ve never felt before. You deserve to feel the excitement of doing something new, doing things which make you feel alive each day. You belong to the place where the people in it encourage you to get rid of your insecurities and make you experience new adventures. You belong to the place where you’re surrounded by people who make you seize the day.
But most of all, you belong in a place where you can love yourself more.
You belong to the place where you love being yourself, because that place makes you feel at home. You belong to the place where you don’t have to wonder whether you have to change yourself or vice versa. You belong to the place where the people in it don’t make you doubt yourself, where they trust you and understand your worth; you belong to the place where being yourself is always enough.
Please remember that the place where you belong is on the other side of your fears and insecurities.
The place where you belong is waiting for you to come, if only you’re brave enough to move and make a change. Be brave enough to leave, to take chances, to know new faces and to explore new things.
Remember that the earth is wide enough for you explore and there are 7 billion people on earth. You have nothing to lose, because your next destination might be the place where you belong. Trust your intuition; if you feel like the place where you’re standing now doesn’t give you the opportunity to grow, to feel loved, and to be yourself, just leave.
Because in the end, you know you’re in the right place when your heart sincerely tells you to just stay.
